A big pile of sound...
The first track will pull you in. I listened to it three times before I continued on through the album!
There is so much going on in these recordings. Clever vocal snippets, thick percussion, layer upon layer of sound drips from your speakers.
Fans of Psychic TV (A Prayer for Derek Jarman), Cevin Key (any Download album), and the Orb (orbus terrarum-era) will probably enjoy this.
Very impressive! This one will definately get repeated listenings and end up on more than a few compilations.

review from Disquiet
Tones and voices, dance-club-ready background music and street-clearing sirens — all that and more resonate throughout The Fold’s self-titled, 10-track collection from the Panospria netlabel. But what makes it worth the download (and at 140-plus MB, it’s no meager file) is specifically the percussion — the cash-register chucka-chucka that bounds beneath the electric drills and mechanical dread of “They Said September”, the charged static that shoots amid the echo chamber that is “A Rainy Exit”, the broken technology that lumbers throughout “Rough Malk Collapse”, and foremost, the hard patterning that binds the opening track, “Jackie’s Exam”. Perhaps explaining the quality of the sound, the credit for mastering goes to none other than Andreas Tilliander.
